      NextLOOK: Performing Otherness (Ainihi e Alteridade)

      NextLOOK Residency: May 18 - 22, 2020: Sinclair Ogaga Emoghene, Pablo Regis, and Kate Spanos  Performing Otherness (Ainihi e Alteridade) Date of public performance: Friday, May 8 at 7pm This project examines ainihi (“identity” in Hausa) and alteridade (“otherness” in Portuguese) in music and dance traditions of Nigeria and Brazil. Multidisciplinary artist team Sinclair Ogaga Emoghene, Pablo Regis, and Kate Spanos collaborate to look for both universality and cultural specificity in shared movements and rhythms. Artists and audiences who participate in this project will consider the question: How can we re-choreograph our minds and bodies to accept the “Other” and challenge our cultural biases? The performance includes new and traditional songs and dances, a carnival-style parade, and an audience feedback session and artist discussion.
